Polymorphic microsatellite markers in the false kelpfish Sebastiscus marmoratus: isolation, characterization, and cross-species amplification
A (GT/CA)13-microsatellite-enriched genomic library of the false kelpfish Sebastiscus marmoratus was constructed, and 20 polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized. The polymorphisms were investigated in 48 wild individuals from a single population collected from the northern Yellow Sea. The numbers of alleles per locus varied from 4-22 with an average of 9. The observed and expected heterozygosities of each locus ranged from 0.196-0.958 and from 0.487-0.942, with an average of 0.693 and 0.765, respectively.
